What are bostocks? Bostock is a classic French breakfast pastry. Slices of stale (or not) brooch or challah bread soaked in orange syrup and baked under a layer of almond cream. I recommend the recipe for golden challah and I recommend baking it from two servings at once. We enjoy one challah while it is fresh. Then we prepare the cream and syrup and for the next 2 - 3 days we have a delicious and sweet breakfast or dessert.

These delicious and sweet toasted sandwiches are a great way to use up stale bread.
